Montgomery Bell State Park, Burns, TN 37029

I'm inviting folks here, but... TO RSVP, PLEASE GO TO the OFFICIAL EVENT PAGE: https://www.facebook.com/events/341245283264707/

The CGBC (Cumberland Green Bioregional Council) will once again be gathering for a weekend of communion, fun, learning, and musical mayhem. The camping / cabin area at Montgomery Bell State Park will be a first, but it looks really nice! On Sat., June 1st, I'll be doing an acoustic set from 7-8pm, followed by "The Swellz" band, playing classic rock from 8pm until... well, until people wear themselves out on the dance floor and crawl off to bed, I suppose (actually, I'm sure there's an end-time, I just don't know what it is)..

Come out and camp for the whole weekend, or just join us for some cool music on Saturday night - your choice!!
